Hello, I have an old file server without a hardware RAID option. It is running Server 2000 SP4.
I had been running mirrored 500GB drives on it and recently tried to upgrade to 2TB discs. Unfortunately, while I had no trouble mounting the new discs, and copying over the data to a new dynamic 2TB volume on one disc, when I try to add a mirror to it and select the second disc, the mirror regeneration fails. It chugs away until it gets to 60% or so and then simply quits and reverts the volume to "unallocated". Sometimes I get a disc I/O error, and sometimes there is no feedback at all.
I think I can rule out the hardware, since I have already tried replacing the hardware.
Can Server 2K simply not handle volumes of this size?

To clarify: regeneration would start, then fail at about 60% - usually with an I/O error. I replace the second disc, but regeneration still fails - just no I/O error.
